  1. My email provider has an aggressive spam filter. Looking at the offline activation = there is a reference to the web depot. Where is the web depot?
  2. Returning from a long hiatus from SB - and having lost the software, dongle etc. some time ago. I have purchased the latest version and was wondering if anyone has ever used a Saitek yoke (used for flight simulation) for SB? Or do I need to find my Thrustmaster and plug it back up?
  3. I have a new Dell - the stats say I have an AMD Radeon 6700 card with 1 Gig of memory. Are there better cards out there? This is an OEM card and I understand they normally do not put the latest best video cards in the computers.
  4. Took your advice - reinstalled and downloaded the 2.552 update. Everything is running fine. Thanks.
  5. Sean - to be clear - I should uninstall the entire game and start over from scratch. Not complaining but not wanting to screw up either. Thanks.
  6. Snake - there are 3 error messages: Generic Application Error. Switching to the reference rasterizer, a software device that implements the entire Direct3D set, but runs very slowly. Warning: Nothing will be rendered. The reference rendering device was selected, but your computer only has a reduced-functionality reference device installed. Install the Direct X SDK to get the full reference device. Generic application error. The program will now exit.
  7. I recently bought a new computer and had purchased the upgrade to 2.538. Everything seemed to work fine. Got the 2.546 and 2.552 updates - installed them back to back and now SB will not run. How do I uninstall the updates?

    WOW - looks really good to me.
  9. Steel Beasts is great for modern warfare, but for those of us who would love to have a Tiger or Panther to fight with, what is the best WWII tank game - in everyone's opinion?
  10. It worked in the non-Beta version all the way to the bad guys capturing the power station which took a little over an hour. They just keep coming - I can't kill them all. Thanks, Gene
  11. OK I will try that. Nothing else has worked so far. And it is a neat scenario - at least I have enjoyed the first 10 minutes or so. I am dispersing all over the place. Those sneaky Russians have so many approaches to try.
  12. Congo - I tried that and it didnt work. I am going to delete the scenario and then download it again and see if that works.
  13. I played this scenario right after I got the game and lost horribly. I played it all the way through the Red team capturing the power station with no problems other than my inept play. I am a little better but this scenario crashes about 10-12 min into it the last 5 times I have played it. I have downloaded it again but the same results. None of the other scenarios I have played crash. And I would estimate having played more than 50 times with only this scenario crashing. Any suggestions?
  14. I am really new to SB and last night I played a scenario with a company of M1A1s and some Bradleys. I gave orders to move and the infantry just ran alongside the Bradleys which slowed down the Bradleys to a crawl. How do you tell infantry to load up and then disembark when you want them to? Sorry if this is a dumb question but it was frustrating watching them crawl along the map.
  15. Thanks I am happy - installed it tonight - now I can play at higher resolutions and no crashes so far.
  16. I am looking for a pat on the back and the resulting "warm fuzzy feeling". I hope I do not get a "You are a dumb s**t" reply. I am upgrading from an ATI X300 to a GeForce 8600 GT. With the ATI X300 - my thermal sight will change colors on a long scenario and it sometimes loses the aiming whatyoumacallit when the mag. is increased. Plus it was crashing a lot lately which only started happening after I upgraded my DirectX to 10. I have been reading research about cards and making sure they will fit my current system and the 8600GT will work according to Dell. Did I screw up?
  17. Thanks, In SB - does the loader replenish the ready ammo automatically?
  18. What is the standard load out for a M1A1? I am new to SB and was playing the 73 Easting demo battle since I only have to control one tank and all movement is predetermined. Anyway, I notice I have only have about 12 Sabots and 5 HEAT rounds. I assume the M1A1 had a ready ammo supply - is this what is represented here with more rounds stored elsewhere in the tank? Thanks in advance, Gene
  19. OK when I download one of the .rar files, and double click it - my computer doesnt know what to do - can someone help me?
  20. Where do I download the files to?
